6:03pm
their second edition of their line-up videos showing two men pistol whipping and robbing a man at laguna and cleary back in july. they took off in a silver dodge charger driven by a third person. if you recognize them, police want to hear from you. this is part of a new sfpd program intended to generate leads to cold cases. partly with the help of social media. new at 6:00 tonight, damaged cars and businesses protestors armed with paint grenades, road flares, even an ice pick. now police want to throat book at a group of anarchists and to do it, they are demanding some help from twitter. the social networking site has been subpoenaed by the san francisco district attorney's office. cbs 5 reporter joe vazquez on what prosecutors hope to find and, of course, the latest battleground in the online privacy war, too. joe. >> reporter: what they hope to find is information on a couple of protests, one in the mission, another in the financial district back in september and october. a couple of questions. did a married couple help plan
6:04pm
the protest on twitter and is it okay for prosecutors to tweak twitter to find out? october 6th, the tenth anniversary of the united states involvement in afghanistan, a group of demonstrators marched through san francisco's financial district. some got destructive busting out windows at the starbucks and other establishments. paintballs exploded on police in riot gear. a few days later on the san francisco police website the cops identified 20 people as anarchists arrested for vandalism and assaults on police officers, among them lauren smith and her husband robert donahoe. prosecutors have since issued subpoenas asking not just for their public tweets but also their subscriber information on twitter as well as the names of all their twitter followers. it's akin to phishing where you're using dynamite to catch fish into the bay rather than a rod to catch a single fish. robert's attorney is fighting
6:05pm
the subpoena in corporate citing first and fourth rights as well as privacy. if they are on social media how do they have an expectation of privacy? >> social media has a lot of private information. your phone number, your location, ip address. and when you tweet something it's instantly broadcast to the whole world. now that information is gone and it's owned by my client. >> i don't think you have of a right to privacy when you're engaged in that type of criminal behavior. >> reporter: grge gascon says he can't talk about the case but says social media is fair game for prosecutors. >> it's nothing more than a vehicle of communication between people. it reflects behavior. when we're investigating a case, we're looking for evidence of behavior that may be connected to a criminal act. >> reporter: we asked twitter for a comment but no response. you heard the attorney say prosecutors are overreaching? a judge will decide whether
6:06pm
that's true. joe vazquez, cbs 5. arson investigators think whoever torched an east bay apartment overnight may have had murderous intentions. the manager of the dixon lane apartments in hayward said she woke up around 4 a.m. to the sound of breaking glass then saw a fireball erupt in her living room. firefighters think someone hurled a molotov cocktail through the front window of her unit. >> when i got my front door, the manager next door to me was standing in her front door yelling for help with flames coming out of her apartment. >> the apartment was gutted but no one was hurt. so far, no word on who may have done it or why. checking other bay area headlines, the man's recovering after his car plummeted 300 feet over a cliff in daly city. it happened about 4:30 this morning along highway 35 near olympic way. rescue crews used a fire truck and winch to carry the man up to the road before taking him to the hospital. near mount hamilton this afternoon a truck went over a guardrail killing at least one
6:07pm
person. this was just south of the lick observatory. the truck went off the road and as you see rolled over. contra costa county planning for the worst hoping for the best. the county announced it might end up having to close four to 10 of its fire stations. it's part of a service reduction plan in case voters do not pass the district's parcel tax proposal. there is a meeting going on right now and we are going to have the decision for you tonight at 10:00 and 11:00. the giant sinkhole in lafayette may be going away by the end of the year. that's because the city has hired a big-time emergency contractor to fill it in. the sinkhole on mountain view drive has been there since december 2 after a heavy rain caused a water pipe to burst. ken bastida is at the sinkhole with mobile5 and an update. >> reporter: let me show you what's going on. a couple of big backhoes working in the creek right now preparing it for the repair job that is going to take at least the next six days and nights. they are not going to stop.
6:08pm
they are going to go 24 hours around the clock. c.c. meyers, the company that was hired to do this work, and the lafayette city manager steven falk says the reason they picked this company is because they can do it and they have a lot of work to do. >> they are going to route the stormwater around the -- they are going to put the dam in the creek and route the stormwater around the failed pipe. once that he achieve that, they will clear out the creek -- once they achieve that, they will clear out the creek, establish a stream bed on the bottom, then they will bring in a bunch of really big pipes, 10- foot diameter pipes. each section weighs 42,000 pounds. >> reporter: this is the company that can do it, as i said. you remember this company, c.c. meyers, back in 2007, they were the ones who repaired the macarthur maze after that tanker truck fire literally melted down the structure.
6:09pm
and they got a $5 million bonus for that one. it came in 27 days ahead of schedule. and then would months later, this company pulled off another one. they replaced the double deck portion of the bay bridge -- remember when they installed the "s" curve, they had to slide one section out, move one section back in? yeah. they did that one, too. back in 2009, the bay bridge cable this snapped and then forced a replacement of all those i-bars. the bridge was shut down for several days while they did that. who did they call? c.c. meyers. they are out here tonight with lights, generators, backhoes, people on the ground welding and cutting metal down there in the creek. they say hey, no problems, $600,000 from the city of lafayette, we'll have it done i six days and you'll be able to go back up the hill by christmas. that's the situation in lafayette right now. i'm ken bastida, back to you. >> thank you. in oakland, exceptional

'tis the season for secret santas. a couple of generous ones paid a visit to an area walmart. juliette goodrich reports. >> reporter: this is one of the holiday stories we love to report on. imagine walking into walmart buying your holiday goodies and someone saying, i'll pick up the tab. they doesn't want to be identified. we don't know who they are but people here are calling them, secret santas. megan and her little sister were christmas shopping with their parents at walmart when they spotted a toy sewing machine they had always wanted. >> they got it for me and she had the bag in her hands. what are you talking about? >> reporter: the girls' parents were randomly handed a bag by a
6:14pm

6:15pm
special. >> that they're nice generous people and giving other people stuff they can't afford. >> reporter: so walmart is not releasing any surveillance video. they want to leave this just as it is. secret santas in the area. and i have to tell you, that mattie also noticed something. she told me that the man had a distinguished laugh kind of like -- santa's. back to you. >> absolutely. >> and santa has to remain secret. >> yes. >> otherwise, they will be looking for him. >> that part is magic. >> reporter: absolutely. to talk to these cashiers here, they have seen acts of kindness but they really witnessed something over the top over the weekend. because the customers got to thank them personally and they got to see the joy that the givers also had. >> thank you, juliette. roberta has her eye on the sky where santa's going to have his flight in a couple of weeks, right?
6:16pm
some rain in the forecast? >> we have a lot of rain in our forecast for the next 10 days leading into new year's eve. in and out of the rain so keep that umbrella handy. good evening, everyone. let's go ahead and fire thank you. it's live. it's our high-def doppler radar. you see the scan from our radar site mount vaca. as it scans the val centrally and heads 132 miles towards merced, there you have it. we have the leading edge of the precipitation off the north bay coast. in fact, let's move north now and there you had the leading bands of a cold front beginning to descend in a southerly direction towards cloverdale upstream, rain in the mount shasta area. this is our bigger picture, satellite and radar. this here is a very fast moving cold front which tells you something right away. since it moves so fast you won't see a lot of precipitation. but nevertheless behind it here a lot of unsettled cool air
6:17pm
mass so it will be a very chilly day for your wednesday. right now 55 in redwood city. san jose at 54. what a difference a day makes. these temperatures down 5 to 10 degrees from yesterday. tonight not as cold due to the blanket of cloud cover into the 40s across the board. all right. here you have it, futurecast. when you will hear the raindrops on your rooftops? 9:00 on santa rosa. midnight throughout the central bay making tracks toward san jose, campbell overnight. and then there's your wednesday. a raw cool breezy day and then we're talking about a hit-and- miss scattered rain shower and that's about. meanwhile, your temperatures tomorrow only in the 50s from the coast to the santa clara valley, 53 free. outside number 56, 57 degrees to the east and north. and this indeed is your pinpoint forecast. thank you. you know, there's weather, and then there's the gravity of the sun and the moon. the celestial alignment that's
6:18pm
surging into the bay area. and it will test our infrastructure. >> a serious test for a bay area neighborhood. a school closed years ago is going to reopen and with it, what could be more traffic than the streets can handle. you're on timeout leo! some things won't last 25 years. ah! woof! some things will.
6:19pm
secondhand smoke affects everyone's health. it's not just irritating. it can cause heart disease and even death. speak up about secondhand smoke. your health and the health of your family depend on it.
6:20pm
some things won't last 25 years. ah! woof! some things will. and bay area shorelines. ans well, some very high tides are in store for the northern california coast and the bay area shorelines. and as cbs 5 reporter mike sugerman explains, some researchers think it will provide a glimpse of things to come. >> reporter: of all the photogenic spots of the bay area to take pictures of, why is hailey taking pictures of water and cement? [ laughter ] >> it's afternoon important picture. >> reporter: it's the before and after. >> the pictures of the king tideses help yours visualize
6:21pm
the dramatic tidal reefs that we're already experiencing. >> reporter: the connector ramp from 101 to marin was flooded today. that happens. but normally when there's a storm. there was no storm of the just very high tides, king tides. >> but are rising tides stuff like this needs to be considered. >> reporter: they are about gravity. the earth, moon and sun are in such a position that tides will be the highest of the year the next couple of days. but it could look like the new normal. oceans are filling up with more water for a variety of reasons, 8" more in the past century. san francisco sewers is an unlikely place for proof. >> when i came near 1990, there was never a time where the tide was actually higher than our sewer. last year we had 7 events. that saltwater is coming into our system. >> reporter: salt on the pipes
6:22pm
not unlike salt on an open wound. so the california king tide initiative wants as many people as possible a volunteer army out the next couple of days to take pictures at high tide late in the morning. then you will see what every day may look like in the future. like our highest high tide these days. want to know where the tide is going to be highest this week? you want to know where to sent those pictures to the group that wants them? go to cbssf.com, hit "links and numbers," and we will link you up. in san francisco, mike sugerman, cbs 5. neighbors are getting the chance tonight to sound off against a plan to reopen a long closed school in burlingame. some are worried it will create a traffic nightmare along the narrow and winding roads. cbs 5 reporter don ford talked to people more than willing to point out some of the problems. >> reporter: it's been over three decades since hoover elementary was used as a public school. and now plans to reopen it in
6:23pm
this tiny neighborhood has neighbors worried. christine fitzgerald says she was told to expect over 200 cars a day dropping off kids. >> i think with the amount of cars that will be coming in and out of here, it's inevitable that an accident will occur and we're concerned it could be a child being hit by a car. >> reporter: the streets are narrow, many with no sidewalks at all. and one approach even has a one lane bridge. charles forrester is a maine burlingame housing improvement -- is a member of the burlingame housing improvement board and says this upper class neighborhood will be gridlocked. >> an suv factory showroom as far as you can see. every manner of four wheeled vehicle stopped dead waiting to drop the kids off to school. >> reporter: once through, the small neighborhood streets, however, plans call for parents to drive this up street. then into a roundabout and return back downhill. the plan does call to widen the
6:24pm
streets but neighbor liz is skeptical. >> garbage day, mondays. got those bins on either sided. no way even with the bins you can't get by. >> reporter: the good news, re- opening of hoover next year will relieve overcrowding at nearby franklin elementary school but until then residents hope new plans will be considered. >> it could also be a tremendous asset to the community. i just hope that they can find a way for it to work properly. >> reporter: burlingame school district said there was no one available to comment on the controversial traffic plan. too busy preparing for the 7 p.m. school board meeting tonight a meeting at which you can bet there's going to be a lot of comment. in burlingame, don ford cbs 5. coming up in our next half hour, the mother of all california tax laws may be heading for a makeover. but after 34 years, prop 13 is suddenly back on the table. what changes could mean for your property taxes. a new report finds california state workers are among the highest paid in the country. who those employees are and how much they're making.
6:25pm
>> plus, more on the developing story in oregon. a shooting in a shopping mall. an update after the break. ,, ,,,,,, look, if you have copd like me,
6:26pm
you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives,
6:27pm
vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. (blowing sound) ask your doctor about spiriva. follow developments in a dey
6:28pm
shooting at an oregon mall. outh of more on our top story tonight. we continue to follow developments in a deadly shooting at an oregon mall. police in clackamas south of portland say at least three people are now dead including the gunman. a fourth person was badly hurt. this is live pictures from the scene. it all started near the clackamas town center food court around 3:30 this afternoon. witnesses described people running, screaming and trying to hide. >> a lot of people diving. i'm hoping that they weren't getting shot. but there was a lot of people falling and hiding, hiding behind things and so -- a lot of people running, a lot of screaming. we actually hid behind a garbage can, me and my three friends, and then they -- two of them were saying that we should stay because they didn't know where they were firing. but i just stood there and started running so... >> again, at least three people
6:29pm
now reported killed at a mall shooting in oregon. another victim taken to the hospital with what's described as traumatic injuries. police teams are sweeping the mall checking for other victims. we're following this story and we'll keep you updated as new information comes in. the single most important measure ever passed by california voters, to some it is sacrosanct. but others say it is time to revisit prop 13. at 34 years old it holds property taxes in place making it harder for legislators to raise other taxes and in a state notorious for high taxes, a lot of people like that. but as cbs 5 political reporter grace lee explains, more and more californians think the aging law needs some work. grace. >> reporter: you know, there are billions of dollars at stake here so a lot of people are weighing in on this including tom ammiano. he wants to change the law to bring in more money for schools and public safety.
6:30pm
but already, he is getting flak for it. in california, residential and commercial owners are supposed to be treated equally under proposition 13, which passed by voters in 1978. for homeowners, it's straightforward. when you buy a house, your property taxes are based on your purchasing price. your property tax does not change until it's sold to the next owner. a transfer. commercial properties, it was designed to be the same but instead business don't transfer land. they transfer stock which excludes them from getting reassessed so some businesses get to pay a lower property tax. >> so some of them are still being assessed say from 1990 evaluations and their property taxes haven't gone up and it costs the state millions. >> this is the most dramatic view of it. in 1978, 60% of all property taxes in the state were paid by
6:31pm
commercial property owner. 40% by residential. it's now flipped. we residential own railroads paying 60% and the commercial 40. and so we're subsidizing very large corporations who are not paying their fair share. >> reporter: assemblyman ammiano tried to close this loophole for commercial properties last year and failed. this year, he thinks he has a better shot because the democrats have a supermajority. but now the fight has become personal even amongst fellow democrats. in a recent "san francisco chronicle" article, former mayor and speaker of the house willie brown said, quote, if i were in charge, i wouldn't have ammiano or anyone else with a long history of supporting tax hikes carry the bill. i'd pick the most conservative democrat i could find and have him do the job." >> i challenge willie brown to -- i don't think he ever got over that. so i found the remark to be a little snide. >> reporter: you might remember those two men they ran against each other for mayor of san
6:32pm
francisco in 1999. clearly, they are still working it out. so what are businesses at? a group that opposes new taxes says businesses are already paying their fair share and he said, unless businesses are trying to hide a change of ownership, they believe the law should stay as it is. we're going to be watching this closely because a lot of people are concerned if they change anything with prop 13. >> it is going to be a fight. thank you, grace. and then there are california state workers. a new report details just who makes what. cbs news reporter randy paige takes a look at the numbers. >> reporter: california's been described as the golden state particularly for some state employees. according to this bloomberg news story which compares compensation for california state employees to their counterparts in the nation's 12 most populous states california ranks number one with the average pay for state workers at more than $60,000 a year. new york ranks number 2 at
6:33pm
$56,000. and new jersey right behind at $54,000. then there are the extreme examples. bloomberg reports one prison psychiatrist made more than $800,000 last year and a chp division chief retired with more than $483,000 with salary, pension and other exceptions. >> that's a lot. >> reporter: reaction on the street today was unanimous. >> definitely something should be done about that. >> even if those examples are not representative of the broader state employee population, it's the kind of thing that leaves a mark and resonates with the voters. >> reporter: at usc's unruh institute of politics, a professor points out this story comes just one month after california voters were convinced the state was so broke, that a tax increase was necessary to pay for the beleaguered public school system. >> next time there's an initiative on the ballot here in los angeles or statewide, or the next time a viewer sees a story on your station about public employee benefits, they
6:34pm
are going to remember this story. that's going to make them that much angrier. >> reporter: he says that can be translated into votes in next year's elections. >> in the next year or two you will see ballot initiatives local here in los angeles and on a statewide ballot designed to change the way public employee benefits and public employee pensions are done. >> reporter: which means, next year, voters will likely hear less about how poor the state is and more about how it got that way. at usc, randy paige, cbs 2 news. we have all heard the expression a penny for your thoughts? one state worker got a lot more than that and it came out of your pocket. a recent audit revealed the unnamed department of education employee spend the bulk of his time posting comments on the "sacramento bee"'s website. he posted nearly 5,000 of them in a year all during business hours. >> he is, you know, using the taxpayer's time to basically voice his opinions on, you know, whatever it was that he,
6:35pm
you know, struck his fancy. >> when questioned, the worker claimed that he didn't have enough to do during the day to stay busy. he was never formally disciplined and continued to post until he eventually quit. the department has now installed software to restrict unauthorized employee activity on social media websites. a tumultuous day in michigan as the state's governor signed bills making it the nation's 24th "right to work" state. cbs reporter randall pinkston was in lansing as tens of thousands of union supporters protested at the state capital. >> reporter: police clashed with union supporters who are angry over new legislation that makes michigan a "right to work" state. >> one of them grabbed me by the head and another sprayed me in the face. >> reporter: from the floor to the rafters inside the capital building, protestors shouted, shame on you, as michigan's republican-controlled house passed the bill. >> this is what democracy looks like! >> reporter: union members fear
6:36pm
it will hurt wages and benefits and set a resident nationwide. >> cheap labor not even a living wage i'm sure. can you live on $10 an hour? >> reporter: the new law means public and private sector workers don't have to pay union dues, while getting union representation. backers say it creates more jobs and gives workers more freedom. >> it is the principle that people should not be forced to join a union or any organization if they do not wish to. >> reporter: the demonstration did not die down even after lawmakers passed the legislation. [ screaming ] >> reporter: protestors swarmed rick snyder's office building tuesday demanding that he veto the bill. but the republican governor signed them into law. randall pinkston, cbs news, lansing, michigan. it's something we have heard again and again over the past four years. there just aren't enough job openings out there. >> i'm just floored that we're not deluged with people. >> why this job fair complete with the dancing bear may not
6:37pm
be enough to staff one single bay area restaurant. >> and a sweet deal for anyone looking for holiday dungeness. who won and who lost in the great crab price dispute of 2012. [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow, you guys have it easy. i wish i had u-verse when i was your age. in my day, we didn't have these fancy wireless receivers.
6:38pm
blah blah blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom. no. we had to watch movies in the den because that's where the tv outlet was. and if dad was snoring on the couch, we muscled through it. is she for real? your generation has it made. [ male announcer ] the wireless receiver only from at&t u-verse. get u-verse tv for $29 a month for six months. rethink possible.
6:39pm
means crab boats along the t will be heading back out tomorrow night. crabbers and the end of a price dispute means crab boats along the coast will be heading back out tomorrow night. crabbers and buyers have agreed to $3 a pound for dungeness. crab boats sat idle at their docks for six days during the price dispute. the strike was called after fish brokers dropped the price over slowing demand. but crabbers wanted $3 and they got it. a soon-to-open emeryville restaurant thought there would be a line of applicants around the block when it announced the hiring of about 100 employees. but as cbs 5 reporter patrick
6:40pm
sedillo shows us, what they got was quite the opposite. >> very surprised. i didn't expect this at all. usually we have opened other black bears and usually black bear gets swamped with applicants. >> like normally how many? >> hundreds. >> reporter: the job fair for the black bear restaurant under construction in emeryville has been a disappointment for the last two days. >> i'm just floored that we're not being deluged with people. >> reporter: 120 jobs are available to those who want them but -- >> if we have reached 30 or 40 i'd be surprise. >> reporter: imagine that this black bear diner told me they only hired 20 out of the 40 applicants yesterday. this restaurant is scheduled to open next month and they might not be able to staff it. how long have you been out of a work? >> almost a year. >> reporter: she decided to stop by and try her luck. she saw the story on cbs 5 and is applying. >> anything, i mean, i can do grunt work or help out in the
6:41pm
